Karyn White (born October 14, 1965) is an R&B singer who was popular during the late 1980s and early 1990s.


Karyn was born in Los Angeles as the youngest of five children. She sang in a church choir and worked as a backing singer, then sang on Jeff Lorber's single "Facts Of Love" before signing to Warner Brothers and releasing her debut album in 1988. The album Karyn White was produced by Babyface and sold 2 million copies. It had the hit singles "The Way You Love Me," "Secret Rendezvous," "Superwoman" and "Love Saw It," a duet with Babyface.

Her follow-up album was Ritual of Love in 1991. It had songs produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and featured the hit single "Romantic" (which hit #1 on the Hot 100). Other singles from the album include "The Way I Feel About You," "Walkin' The Dog," and "Do Unto Me." White married Terry Lewis in 1992 and they have a daughter called Ashley Nicole.
